天賜 (Tian Ci), White Tea brick, Old Tree, Spring 2016
天賜 (Tian Ci) translates to "Bestowed by Heaven", and it is a white tea we have produced since 2015. White tea is said to be good in the morning for meditation, or on a hot summer's day due to its cool nature. Our White Tea comes from 200+ year old tea trees in Mengku, Lincang, Yunnan. The tea leaves are shade dried and then pressed into a 500g brick.
Many customers have commented that this tea tastes and smells like honey. The tea body is smooth, full bodied, and viscous. The Qi is pleasant and mildly uplifting. Compared to most white teas this tea is quite warm from the Chinese Medicine perspective; because of this, the tea is more balanced for the stomach and digestive system than the average white tea.
This zhuang is very tightly pressed; please be careful when breaking it up!
